8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Down in Jungle Town, the moon shone down, without a frown;
Soon a shy baboon, came out to spoon, beneath the moon;
Monkey Doodle wagged his noodle, he was Jungle King, She felt flattered when he chattered, "You're a pretty thing,
Big bamboo room for two, So promise you'll be true."
Down in Jungle Town, A honeymoon is coming soon;
Then you'll hear a serenade, To a pretty monkey maid,
And in Monkey Land, The chimpanzees sing in the trees,
"She'll be true to Monkey-doodle-doo" Way down in Jungle Town.
